Reset the Cisco EPC3828D

Once you decide to reset your router you need to know where the reset button is located. On this particular router it is on the

router reset factory settings
This is the reset page from your Cisco router.

This button is quite small. You need to take an unwound paperclip and press down on the reset button for about 10 seconds. If you don't hold this button down for the entire time you will end up only rebooting the router instead of resetting it like you wanted.

Remember this will erase every setting you have ever changed. If you want to avoid having to reconfigure your entire router you should definitely try other troubleshooting methods first.
